More ColourPop Pressed Shadows!

Recently, I’ve been totally enamored with iridescent, cool-toned eye looks. I’ve always been drawn to sheer, shimmery shadows in pale lilacs, dusty blues, and mossy greens. While the rich warm tones we’ve been seeing in eyeshadow palettes everywhere in the last couple years have been lovely, I’m really happy to see brands embracing cool tones…

Frankie Rose Cosmetics Matte Perfection Foundation and Concealer

Confession, I first wrote this post at the beginning of March. April 28th was my wedding, and as amazingly wonderful as it was, the planning period took up a lot of time and energy. Now that that’s over, I’m back! Besides this intro and taking a couple last minute pics, I haven’t changed a single…

Thus, I always carry a bottle of makeup remover in my bag. Although that does the trick, it takes my previously well-blended under-eye concealer with it. Plus,…

Bird’s Tail Jewelry – A Review

Whether found at a gift shop close to my hometown or from the places I’ve traveled to, my favorite pieces of jewelry are usually crafted by independent, local artists. I find those pieces to be so unique, and it’s wonderful to support small businesses, knowing that my money is going to someone who’s put time…

I Bought It Twice: Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder

Two things about me: 1) Despite being a makeup lover, I actually don’t like to have too much of it. I prefer to keep an organized collection of items that I actually use and enjoy. 2) I’m currently in a mood where I want to explore new brands and products versus sticking to my tried…
